Black History: Lost, Stolen or Strayed VHS
'Significant.' 'Moving.' 'Devastating.' These are words that were used to describe this news report on African-American history when it aired in July of 1968 ... Featured segments spotlight the changing image of black Americans through film and TV clips ranging from The Birth of a Nation, to Amos 'n' Andy, to Guess Who's Coming to Dinner; Freedom Day School in Philadelphia, where African-American children were taught about their heritage and racial identity; and some of America's less familiar black heroes, including Daniel Hale Williams, the first doctor to perform open heart surgery in America.

Marcus Moore Dallas Texas. !!!!!!
The only sad note about this video, is that it has been edited down from the Original that aired on CBS in the late-60's.
CBS aired a 3-night special with Mr. Cosby, so the original series as shown on television would have been about 2 hours and 15 minutes total footage, and this has been edited down.
It does cover the general idea though quite well, but for the complete full impact, I wish that they had produced the full-length version.
I have no idea why it would be necessary to 'edit-down' some of the most important aspects of American Society and possible solutions.
